Martin Odegaard was considered does some years like one of the greater promises of the European football, but after his arrival to the Real Madrid the focus mediático caused that the young footballer, still immature when treating of a teenager, stagnated and did not finish to progress as it expected of him. The years have happened and now finds in the Vitesse, of the Eredivisie Dutch.

After having marked in Glass in front of Heracles, the past Saturday annotated a good goal of direct fault that gave the victory to his team in front of the Utrech (2-1). It crosses now a good moment of form, and in an interview conceded to 'Voetbal International', and collected by 'Goal', ensures that it does not surrender and keeps intact his will to finish triumphing in the Real Madrid.

"How many players of 19 years are in the first team of the Madrid? The way is long and have confidence in me"

"I am satisfied, am finding my way here in the Vitesse. The goal against Heracles removed me load of on", recognises. "I have to play and learn as much as possible. Of course, it expected to have a place in the Madrid. I trained me all the summer and played some minutes. But at the end the club and I decide that the best option for my era play in another side, for my development", adds the Norwegian footballer.

By the moment, Martin Odegaard takes his situation with philosophy and is decided to improve to base of minutes in the Vitesse, although it knows that it will not have it easy. "You have to be modest and have your put clear. How many players of 19 years are in the first team of the Madrid? The way is long and have confidence in me. Work hard, learn in each party and accumulate minutes".

Odegaard Has the clear ideas, but is not sufficient

"My aim is clear: play in the Madrid. I do everything for this. I renewed (until 2021) and I take me this like a gesture of confidence", explains the young midfield player, by the one who in his day litigated average Europe, but that desaprovechó an opportunity after another once recaló in the Real Madrid.

"Only I have 19 years but carry five playing to professional level. Now I understand better what the team wants to, what the trainer wants. I think that I have come to the perfect place to give the following step...", it ensures the Norwegian. It will not have it easy to return to the Real Madrid and settle in the first staff, taking into account that his place are used to it occupy players like Isco, Asensio and Ceballos, every time with more minutes.

The only that it will be able to do Odegaard, therefore, is to content for now with making the best possible performances in the Vitesse for, with luck, have the opportunity to return to the club merengue. And, once there, already it will see if has or no opportunities to play in LaLiga Santander and the Champions League, two competitions that come him, to day of today, too big.
